It's so cold ...

Hi Everybody,

What has happened to all that lovely sunshine from a few weeks ago, today is so cold and the rain is pouring down on my craft room windows.

I hope we have some more good weather before the real winter sets in again.

Thank you for all the good wishes I received from those of you who managed to watch my first "Live" appearances on Create and Craft.

It was scary stuff I can tell you but I really enjoyed myself and the experience.

I hope to be back again soon with more fabulous new dies from Spellbinders.

I demonstrated the Create a Flower range and I promised to add tutorials on each of the flowers to the website ... but for now the first one on the Poppy has been added to the blog for you to view.

Please pop over to ... Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls

And over the next few weeks I will add more and then create a page on flowers for the website ... more about that nearer the time.

I am still giving away a card that I have made each Friday and so if you would like to win one then you will need to leave me a comment.

But don't forget to come back and check to see if you are the winner as you will only have 48 hours in which to claim the card.

The same thing applies whenever I have a "Give Away" and they are done on a regular basis with some exceptional goodies on offer.

The next one will take place next Tuesday 26th August and run until Sunday 31st August and then you will have 48 hours to claim that prize.

To enter for that you need to be a follower and please leave me a comment so that I know you have been. No follow --- No win !!

The Spellbinders Video Tutorials that were previously with The Art Studio are now on a special page on Card Making Magic and if you click the link it will take you to the page.

Each class has a summary of the content and each class is priced at $9.99 (about £5 GBP) but within the class you will be making at least two cards

Class 5 has just been added and this one introduces you to some backgrounds and textures.

Spellbinders Tuition

They are very reasonably priced and there will be lots more exciting thing happening in the future

I hope you will continue to visit both the Blog and the Website on a regular basis and that way you won't miss out on any of the lovely offers that come up.

I so much enjoy getting all of your comments ... either on the blog or on Facebook and if you email me I will always respond.

But check that you have sent me your correct email address or that I am not in your junk folder ... my email address is ...

Click the link to the blog below and take a peek ... and maybe join the group of followers, enter your name for the Give Aways or the Friday Freebie

Flowers Ribbons and Pearls

I am still selling my cards in my Etsy Shop and I will also make custom orders for Special occasions ... and that is something I really enjoy doing

I have made quite a few in the last month and all with matching boxes for super special occasions.

Updates ...

YouTube continues to grow and on Create and Craft I said it was almost at four million. That week it rolled over to 4,000,103 but since then it has gone up and is now at ...

4,046,753 views with an amazing 20,254 followers... and I am so grateful for the support and comments that I get everyday

If you visit YouTube please let me know what you thought of the video tutorial you have watched in the comments box below it

Facebook is also there for you to click the "Like" button and leave me more of your comments, stories or questions.

And finally ... can I ask that if you do add photos to the Gallery Pages that you identify yourself the same each time you do.

So if you are say Christina Griffiths from Blackpool UK that the next time you add photos you don't become Chris UK ... as that is very confusing.

I may have several Marys, Emilys or Annes and in order for me to add your photos to your page and not someone elses then I need to know exactly who you are.

And I cannot accept entries from Anonymous either ... so please add your name

Thank you in advance xx
